More About Us
One of the most biologically diverse states in the nation, Texas is rich in natural treasures. But the Lone Star State is losing its undeveloped land faster than any other state. With a commitment to conserving Texas’ native animals, plants and landscapes that began in 1964, The Nature Conservancy now owns more than 38 Texas nature preserves and conservation properties and assists private landowners to conserve their land through more than 100 voluntary land-preservation agreements. With help from public and private partners, and using conservation grounded in science, we have protected 838,000 acres of land and water in Texas.
